This review is from: Synology DiskStation DS214play Diskless System Network Storage - Retail
Pros: Easy setup and a ton of features. This thing can do SO much. Trans-coding of media: audio and video
Cons: I wanted to initially say that the configuration and features were a little difficult, but than I thought about the target market that Synology is shooting for. This is not for noobs. The overwhelming set of features and settings should not be a CON. This is what you get with a NAS of this caliber.
The only con that I could legitimately think of was the RAID setup. The setup just assumed that you'll use SHR (Synology's hybrid RAID), but there are other options. I don't know much (really nothing) about RAID and I wish they had explained better the pros/cons of the different RAID setups during the initial setup.
Other Thoughts: It's been about two days since I had this thing running. I"m so excited to try some of the additional features/packages. I haven't tried the media server portion, but it's one of those features/functions that I definitely want to get workingREAD FULL REVIEW
Pros: Worked right out of the box. I didn't have ANY problems. I installed them into my Synology DS214Play. These are nice and quick or at least this new NAS is so much faster than my old WD Live with a 2TB drive.
Cons: none that I could think of
Other Thoughts: I love the new hard drive packaging. thanks Newegg!READ FULL REVIEW
